Our Moon and Mars

Tonight May 9th and Tomorrow the 10th our Moon will be close to Mars in the night sky and provide a good reference point. Tonight the moon will be below and slightly to the East and Tomorrow it will be above and to the West .


To the upper left of the moon, the planet Mars and the faint Beehive star cluster mark the moon’s path over the next 24 hours.
The first reddish object to the lower right of the moon is the planet Mars. A little further out from Mars towards the horizon is the star Pollux in the constellation Gemini. The moon and Mars however are in the constellation Cancer.

The moon is great to look at in this phase with binoculars or telescopes because it has a lot of cool shadows cast by the mountains. You can also see other cool little craters.
